Many time management and productivity experts frown upon multitasking, claiming that it can actually cause a person more stress and make one prone to mistakes that hamper productivity.
When it comes to beauty routines, though, experts are all for products that provide dual effects in one application, which lets you cut your routine in half without sacrificing a step.
At the Cream Silk Double Up day held recently at 71 Gramercy, beauty experts Agoo Bengzon, Peewee Reyes-Isidro and Rissa Mananquil-Trillo are all in agreement: Adding multitasking beauty products to your routine is a must.
This is especially crucial during the holiday season, when your social calendar is packed to the gills with parties left and right. Former beauty editor Agoo Bengzon shares this tried-and-tested beauty tip to make sure you look your best all the time: “Focus on eyebrows. A good pair can really make you look made up, even when you’re not wearing any makeup.”
As for fashion editor Peewee Reyes-Isidro, her favorite accessory, the skinny scarf, is a staple every woman should have in her closet: “It’s so versatile; you can use it as an actual scarf, transform it into a belt, or a headband. It’s the fastest and easiest way to accessorize your outfit.
Model, entrepreneur and mom Rissa Mananquil-Trillo, meanwhile, swears by dual-purpose makeup products, like the popular lip and cheek mousse her beauty brand, Happy Skin, created: “A lip and cheek mousse adds a healthy flush to your cheeks while imparting a complementary color on the lips.”
Half the time
Even when it comes to hair care, the three beauty experts look for a multitasker that suits their busy lifestyle; one product that offers multiple benefits, allowing them to get soft, smooth and silky tresses in half the time, like Cream Silk’s Daily Treatment Conditioner, a 2-in-1 conditioner infused with a treatment component that delivers double the results in just one application.
Unilever’s Cara Favila calls the Daily Treatment Conditioner their unsung hero: “Cream Silk has long been the leader in hair care designed for Filipino hair. Our daily treatment conditioner combines the smoothness you get from a conditioner with the intensive care of a treatment. It’s a new product that will complement your beauty routine and allows you to have great hair with time to spare.”
At the launch of the Daily Treatment Conditioner, celebrity hairstylist Raymond Santiago was also present to give tips and explain why he loves to use Cream Silk on his celebrity mainstays, like Anne Curtis.
“Whether you’re a celebrity or not, it’s important to invest in proper hair care,” he says. “Cream Silk’s Daily Treatment Conditioner is perfect for those who love experimenting with their hair. As someone who handles over-styled celebrity hair on a daily basis, I can definitely say that celebrities have the driest and most damaged hair, but with Cream Silk, it’s easy to restore hair back to its full and healthy self. This lets me style hair faster and easier.”
Favila adds, “As long as you keep doing stuff to your hair, whether it be coloring or other treatments, we’ll always find a way to give you the care that your hair needs.”
